Miller : “I have contacts but I want to stay at PSG. If this is not possible, we will find a solution”
The Paris Saint-Germain has completed its season for more than 10 days, and is poised to be active during this mercato summer to strengthen. But before you buy, it will have to sell. Among the players on the start, found the right-side Thomas Miller (age 27). Author of a year 2018/2019 disappointing, punctuated by numerous injuries, the Belgian is also very criticized by the supporters of the parisians for its media outlets. Interviewed by the daily Le Parisien, and The Team, the “red devil” refers to his contractual situation, his future in the capital, but also its relationship tumultuous, with fans in Red and Blue. Selected excerpts.
The extension of his contract ?
It is a bit on stand-by. There are a lot of things going on at the club. It is not evil to enter into our last year. All of these extras are that nothing can be done. The club knows my idea to stay. […] This will be his decision, everything is in his hands. Me, I have contacts but I want to remain a player of the PSG. If this is not possible, we will find a solution.
From free in a year ?
This is something that could, I agree. I don’t think the club would make a lot of money on me, to tell the truth. I told the leaders that I was ready to stay, that it would please me greatly. They didn’t tell me : You absolutely wants to sell you. They know that at a moment they need me. […] That there is income or not, for me, PSG is a victory. I still have things to learn there.
The reviews on the social networks
It makes me neither hot, nor cold… sometimes I’m amused ! I have the values. When I talk about something, I try to do it with the most sincerity possible. This is my world, this is my person, I will stay like that. The majority of the fans supported me.
How is it the indictment of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the complaint for rape of Neymar ?
I’m not impacted directly. When you have superstars in your team, you need to know to do with these kinds of things. It is the responsibility of management to manage this. This is where we talk about institution. People can say what they want in relation to my communication, but at no time did I fail to respect at PSG.[…] This is where the club still needs to grow. This is a club that has grown too fast, in relation to its evolution, since the takeover by Qatar. They are aware that there are things to improve. It’s going to come.
PSG – Manchester United
This is just the biggest joke in the history of football. I would have been able to put a million euros that we could not lose. […] They have not even had opportunities and they score three goals… It is even more shocking that with Barça. […] In the champions League, it is still the major problem. The communication has been made on this internationalization, on the fact of winning this competition, being part of the great like Real, Barca. It will still take a lot of time for this, but the PSG is a club that is growing.
